2.15 Licensing the NetWare Server

Every NetWare server must have a valid license for the number of users who access the server. You have several licensing options when installing a server:

Follow these steps to implement the licensing option of your choice:

  1. (Optional) If you want to install the server without licenses, select Install Without Licenses and click Next. Skip to Section 2.16, LDAP Configuration.

  2. To install the server with a license, click the Browse button and browse to the location of the license files:

    • The evaluation license file is located on either of the NetWare installation CDs in the License folder.
    • Standard license files can be located on a diskette, on the server's DOS partition, or on another server in the tree.
  3. Select the desired .nlf file, then click OK.

  4. Click Next.

  5. (Conditional) If prompted, select where in the tree you want to install the license and then click Next.

For instructions on how to delete or install licenses by using iManager after the server installation, see Section 4.1, Installing NetWare Licenses.
